Hi Jeremy,
I hope you don't mind me imposing with a Github question.
My son found the Harvard Free intro to computer science (Course CS50) that uses Github to distribute a codespace configured with the materials, tutorial C library and such. The course starts with plain old C language and he was working through the problems when suddenly he got locked out of his Github account with a SPAM violation. There was no other information provided. All he was doing was editing code, compiling, testing and saving it. Now, as a newbie coder he was making numerous mistakes and so doing a lot of editing and saving. But nothing excessive. He searched the web and found numerous other people who were locked out due to a spam violation but no explanation as to what triggered it. A very, very small number of people reported resolving the issue with Github support but offered no hint on what triggered the spam violation. He opened a ticket with Github support about a week ago, no response yet. Since this is a free Github account he was not holding out any hope that he would get a response. (He has since downloaded the codespace and set up a local environment so he can continue with the course but cannot submit anything since it needs an active Github account.).

I was wondering if you had any experience with this? Some of the people who got locked out seemed to think it was a random occurrence from a new automated monitor that Github installed and that there was not real reason for the SPAM violation.
